Confident of its victory in Haryana, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday held its first state level meeting after the Lok Sabha elections on all ten seats to analyse the polling status and prepare for the next phases of election.
The high-powered meeting in Gurgaon was attended by all the eight party candidates from Haryana, BJP state president Rambilas Sharma, BJP Haryana in-charge Jagdish Mukhi and other party functionaries. Haryana has traditionally been a stronghold of the Congress that has been in power for the past 10 years.
According to party estimates, it is going to register and win all ten seats in the state, including the two on which it fielded candidates from its ally, the Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC).
“We are confident of victory from all constituencies including Sirsa, Rohtak and Hisar for which we are thankful to our booth level workers. Also, we will be deploying party functionaries from Haryana to other states to help with elections there”, said Ramwilas Sharma, president of BJP’s Haryana chapter.
Meanwhile, even as the district administration of Mewat refused to term the violent incidents occurring there since polling day as communal, the BJP has objected to the alleged administrative inaction.
“Looking at the current state of communal tension in Punhana, Mewat, it is evident that the district administration is unable to control the situation. Locals are unable to get basic necessities like milk. Therefore, to satisfy both parties we want the Mewat SP to be transferred for a fair investigation”, said Rao Inderjit Singh, BJP’s candidate from Gurgaon.
Talking about his performance in the elections, he said that the support this year was more than ever before and he expects a greater margin of victory than last year.
According to party sources, a delegation will meet the Governor as well as the director general of police (DGP), Haryana, on Sunday to demand the transfer.
